how can I change risperidal 2mg to zyprexa 5mg?
Hi misslindao; as you are already tapering down the Risperdal you should be able to start the Zyprexa ANYTIME unless the doctor said different. It is good you tapered down before starting the Zyprexa I think you should now just pick a day to switch that is a day you don't have anything planned Because with any new medication you never know how the first dose or two may affect you. To me it always seems stronger the first night if that is when you are taking it but if you can be home and not have to worry about going out is a good idea to start the new one now. And you should not have any big problems.hope that is enough to put you at ease some its always hard to change and start something new but they have had real good success with Zyprexa. Best wishes and have a Mery Christmas. and most of all have a great day. one day at a time things well get better Chuck1957 Please keep in contact we care and we have been there.
